Day 6: Guess Who Fixed Her Garage Door?

Guess who fixed her garage door?

This gal!

My manual garage door has been popping out of the track more frequently these days. I researched solutions via Google (of course!). When Vampire Boy was home this weekend, I had him help me.

We first tried a hammer but it did nothing. I then tried using pliers to bend the track just enough so that the roller wouldn’t jump out when the door was lifted. After opening and closing the doors a few times, we noticed that the hinge holding the roller wasn’t sitting level. After a few more adjustments to this hinge, the door now works perfectly!

This will make winter so much easier for me! (though I’d also love a garage door opener!)

UPDATE: Jinxed myself! Door jumped the track tonight! Grrrr!
